How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Through meeting at least two times each year and through multiple consultations with agency leadership and participation in OJP meetings and conferences.
How is membership balanced?*The composition of the OJP SAB is determined through nominations from the leadership in the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. Final decisions on appointments are made by the Attorney General. FAC members are drawn from the knowledge base of OJP leadership, with emphasis given to individuals with a demonstrated commitment to scientific integrity in criminal and juvenile justice research and evaluation. SAB members are selected from the following areas of expertise: criminology, criminal justice, juvenile justice, tribal justice, statistics, economics, sociology, political science, and other relevant behavioral sciences. The selection of SAB members achieves a balance of backgrounds, experiences, viewpoints, and expertise in both scientific areas as well as criminal and juvenile justice professionals. This distribution ensures that multiple views are represented in each of the areas of expertise. The SAB designates the FAC members as special government employees with the purpose of each member providing advice and guidance that represents the views of practioners, experts, and advocates in each of the respective areas of expertise from which they are chosen.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - two in-person meetings of the SAB (more frequent subcommittee meetings and executive committee meetings by phone).
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*To support DOJ efforts to integrate data-driven approaches to reduce crime. To provide the office of the Assistant Attorney General (AAG) of the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) with valuable advice in the areas of social science and statistics for the purpose of enhancing the overall impact and performance of its programs and activities in the areas of criminal and juvenile justice. The Board helps develop long-range plans, advises on program development, and provides guidance to assist in OJP's adherence to the highest levels of scientific rigor as appropriate. The Board provides an important base of contact with the criminal justice academic and practitioner communities.
